The return of this cult anime promises to be a hit
Those nostalgic for Japanese works of the 90s will be served with the reboot of this successful anime.
Hang on tight, here is an anime that will be talked about. Whether for good or ill, this project should shake up fans of Japanese animation. Succeeding in relaunching a cult license is not an easy task, and the Orange studio is attacking a juggernaut. Some of you may be familiar with Trianglethe manga written by Yatsuhiro Nightow published between 1996 and 1997 in Japan.
This cult work has already had the right to its adaptation in anime in 1998. Back to zero for the franchise which offers a new start in 2023. The aficionados of the first hour risk having the hair which bristles at the sight first images, but we have to move on! With advances in animation, more and more anime are moving to 3D animation.
TRIGUN STAMPEDE therefore offers an adaptation in latest generation CGI animation. After the success of Beastarsthis new way of bringing manga to life is starting to become more popular.
But what is it about?
For those who are not familiar with this universe, Triangle is a futuristic and dystopian anime. Now that the resources of planet Earth are exhausted, humans have had to exile themselves to a desert planet. We then follow the adventures of Vash the Stampede, a bounty hunter known for his talents and his restraint: he does not claim any victims but still achieves his ends.
Thanks to this strange mixture of genres, we then obtain a sort of conquest of the West in a high-tech and post-apocalyptic version which does not lack charm.
It’s for when ?
This reboot will premiere in Japan on January 17. The international distribution is organized by Crunchyrollincluding on French territory. It will therefore be possible to find the episodes in simulcast just after the programming in the Land of the Rising Sun.
In the meantime, know that the original adaptation is available in its entirety on Netflix (namely 26 episodes spread over a single season).
